There is one week left to apply for the Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize! Project submissions for Intersession and Spring 2021 are due Monday, May 3, 2021 by 4:00 pm.
The Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize recognizes excellence in research projects that show evidence of significant knowledge in the methods of research and the information gathering process and use of library resources, tools, and services.
Three prizes of $500.00 each will be awarded to the winning individual student and/or group in the following categories: Undergraduate Foundational (100-level courses), Undergraduate Upper-level (200- to 400-level courses), and Graduate. If won by a group, the award will be split equally among the group members. All you need to do is write a 500- to 700-word essay describing your research process and how you used the library in completing the project. Click here for some tips on how to craft the best 500- to 700-word essay you can about your research.
A statement of faculty support from the instructor who assigned the research project is also required for each submission.
Winners will be announced in May, and although there will be no in-person reception and awards ceremony for the 2020-2021 Bonnie W. Oldham Library Research Prize due to the impact of COVID-19 on campus operations, we look forward to honoring our winners in other ways.
